Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic pain can occur in both men and women and significantly impact many activities associated with normal daily function, including going to the bathroom and sexual intercourse. The cause of pelvic pain can arise from your digestive, reproductive or urinary system. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain.

The skilled pelvic floor therapists at Good Shepherd can help restore function and reduce pain related to a pelvic floor disorder.


What Is Pelvic Floor Therapy?

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a noninvasive treatment approach that uses the principles of physical therapy to provide a structured, effective and safe reconditioning of pelvic floor muscles. The goal of the treatment is to restore function of pelvic floor muscles and alleviate pain, weakness and dysfunction in the muscles.

Good Shepherd’s team of experts, with specialized training, will pinpoint the cause of pain and will recommend a personalized treatment approach. This treatment may include techniques to decrease discomfort, strengthen pelvic muscles, provide flexibility training to pelvic floor and hip muscles and address concerns related to issues of intimacy.
